Storyboard Text

  • The Flight of a Lifetime
  • Site Seeing
  • Homestay
  •     My first international flight to China. It took roughly 20 hours. but it felt like a lifetime. The whole plane ride I was just sitting there daydreaming about this life changing trip I was on.
  • Visited Several Local Schools
  • We visited the city, all the major site seeing spots, the local villages, and the Great Wall of China. We attended a traditional tea ceremony, visited schools, and attended ping pong training. The lifestyle of these people is so much different then ours.
  • Following Tradition
  • I stayed with a local family for 2 days and 1 night. Their home looked like a hotel in a way. It was very small, but had many rooms in a hotel style. They cooked a traditional Chinese and it was strange to eat, but a good experience.
  • The Aftermath
  • Played with local children and visited their schools. They were all so excited to see us and talk to us. Some schools were very dirty and run down. Other schools were big and marvelous. Some even had kitchen stations set up for culinary classes. The social classes in China were very defined; you are either rich or poor there is no middle class.
  • I attended a traditional tea ceremony. Each tea cup they brought to you had to be drunk. It was seen as disrespectful to not drink all the tea. Frankly, all the tea didn't taste good, but to accommodate to their customs I drank it all.
  • I learned about a new culture and lived I China for 17 days. This trip changed my life in more ways than one. I gained a new found respect for the working class and how good we have it in America. seeing young children only wearing cloths because they cant afford clothes.
